Parking, Gardens and Views
To the front and side of the property, a large driveway provides extensive parking for several vehicles while to the rear, a detached wooden garage is currently used for storage. The property is situated within a plot of approximately three-quarters of an acre of stunning mature gardens that are laid mostly to lawn with exceptionally well stocked and maintained shrub and floral displays. The gardens are private and not overlooked, backing on to open farmland. To the front, breathtaking views can be appreciated over open countryside, which must be seen in person to be fully appreciated.
Please note that Kerenza was formally a licensed bed and breakfast and as such could be used for this purpose again if required. There has also been planning previously passed for either the erection of a brick-built detached garage to the rear or a substantial two-storey extension to the side to encompass a double garage and accommodation over. Plans are avaliable upon request.
